Shoes thrown towards Pakistan President Zardari in Britain

Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari insulted in Britain when an unidentified man threw shoes pointing towards him during a public meeting.

The Telegraph Sunday reported that Zardari, who has been criticised for visiting Britain while there were floods in his country, was in the middle of his speech when an elderly man in the crowd hurled both shoes at him.

‘Zardari was in the middle of a long campaign speech when a man towards the back of the crowd hurled the shoes at him,’ an eyewitness was quoted as saying.’They landed short of him, and it wasn’t clear what exactly the man was protesting about.’

While talking to the British daily, Zardari had dismissed claims that he should have stayed at home.

He said that the visit had resulted in the floods receiving far more international attention than they might otherwise have done.

Zardari said: ‘These meetings are planned months in advance, and my coming abroad has drawn more attention to them than I myself would have been able to draw.’
